<p>This paper shows the determination of undrained shear strength based on cone<br />resistance from cone penetration test for clayey soil. The test was carried out on ten different suspected clayey soil sites at Ebonyi State College of Education, Ikwo. The ...

<p>The formation of cracks in structural elements and other parts of a building such as walls is often unavoidable; that is why some standard of practice specify the maximum allowable width of cracks depending on the type and exposure conditions of a structure. ...

<p>This work focuses mainly on the Geotechnical properties of mapped areas in Gombe town which forms part of the Upper Benue trough. Representative soil samples were collected from these areas and were investigated for their Geotechnical properties with a ...

<p>The SPT is considered one of the most common in-situ tests to evaluate the strength of coarse grained soil. In this study, it is tried to answer the question that, whether is possible to estimate undrained shear strength (Su) of fine-grained soil from N ...

<p>In many ground improvement projects the preliminary field testing method is different from the tests that are carried out later. Hence, it may be necessary to correlate the two tests for comparative purposes. Dynamic Compaction, using pounders weighing ...

<p>Although manual cone penetration testing in snow has been practised since the 1930&rsquo;s, modern hydraulically-driven CPT equipment has not been used. Collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey will allow the first use of commercial CPT equipment ...

<p>Cone penetration test (CPT) or piezocone penetration test (PCPT or CPTu) has long been used to estimate the undrained shear strength of clays. However,<br />the undrained shear strength itself is not a unique measure of soil strength; different laboratory ...

<p>This paper investigated the vertical and horizontal distribution of excess pore pressure generated by cone penetration. Multi-porous element piezocone tests were conducted in the field and physical model tests were also performed in the<br />calibration ...

<p>This paper presents the results of a series of piezoball penetration and<br />dissipation tests carried out at two well characterized soft soil sites in Ireland.<br />Piezoball data are compared with piezocone data, in addition to other in situ and laboratory ...
